Instant Push-To-Talk communications are a must-have in critical industries. Already, Push-To-Talk-over-Cellular (PTToC) applications are being used to replace traditional radio communications in non-mission-critical scenarios. However, while cellular networks certainly have the data rates and speed to provide instant communications, is PTToC really mission-critical? In this lesson from the Tait Radio Academy, we explore that question.
